A train has derailed in the Alps in southern Germany, leaving at least three people dead and a number of others injured, authorities said.

The train heading for Munich derailed at about 12.15pm on Friday in Burgrain, near the resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, according to federal police. Some carriages apparently ended up on their side. The cause was not immediately clear.

The local government in Garmisch-Partenkirchen said at least three people were killed and multiple others seriously injured, the news agency dpa reported.

It was not clear how many people were on the train at the time of the accident. The line between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Oberau, north of the accident site, has been closed.
